Music Of The Trees 1: Sibelius

tops-of-treesBy accident or whatever, I’ve found music of trees crossing my path today. There’s a good bit of it all over, mostly in the so-called classical sphere.

A new discovery for me are these five piano pieces from the opus 75 of Jean Sibelius.

I was struck by the balance of solemnity and playfulness of the fourth, representing the birch tree. But my favorite is the last one, representing the spruce.

I see a lot of that last tree in my neighborhood, too.
